I remember a time when Canada would only get invovled as peacekeepers.
I remember a time when US businessmen traveling abroad would take courses on how to act "Canadian" so to avoid trouble, everyone loved Canadians.
I remember when Chritchen told GW to jump in the lake, over the Iraq Lies.
Then the Lapdog Harper came along.......
Now Canada is just another Butt-Hole Bully Country.
Bill C-90 "An Act to Amend the National Defence Act" was enacted on 1 August 1964 and the integrated headquarters structure under a CDS came into being.

I think everyone here is missing one peculiar thing about this and that is the abrupt timing of this move.
Does this mean something is on the horizon??
Prince Harry has been deployed to Afghanistan for four months, the Ministry of Defence says.
The prince, an Apache helicopter pilot, arrived on Thursday night at the main British base, Camp Bastion in Helmand.
The 27-year-old, who is third in line to the throne, will take part in combat missions against the Taliban.
It is his second Afghanistan deployment - he spent 10 weeks in Helmand province in 2007-08 but was pulled out after media reported his secret deployment.

In an Apache heli, Harry can kill anything that looks like a threat before he has even made a visual identification of the target. Anything that could pose a threat to the Prince would be churned meat before having a chance to fire upon the craft. The statistics speak for themselves, since the RAF have never lost one in battle. He is in more danger of an engineering failiure than an enemy action in that thing. Its hell on rotors!

I see the closing of the embassy as a prelude to hostilities.
Regardless of the current US stance, and perhaps in defiance of it, the Harper Government has seemed intent on cosying up to the Israelis. What is behind that is beyond me, but they must be aware of something about to come down the tube. Also, if Obama loses the election, things will change there in regards to how the West in total is going to handle Iran.
I wouldn't doubt the recent 'intelligence trading' treaty with NK has something to do with the Canadian move.
